Yeah, we need a voting test

In response to a commenter's statement that voting tests discriminate against blacks, I give you this:

Michelle Malkin points out that:

[The video reinforces a nationwide poll that] surveyed over 500 self-professed Obama voters and has an MOE of 4.4%, with 55% having a college degree and over 90% having a high-school diploma. It asked 12 multiple-choice questions; only 2.4% got at least 11 correct. Only .5% got all them correct.
57.4 could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)
81.8 could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)
82.6 could NOT correctly say that Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)
56.1 % could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).And yet…..
Only 13.7% failed to identify Palin as the person their party spent $150,000 in clothes on
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter
And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

I don't give a damn what color you are (or gender for that matter) if you're too damned stupid to vote, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Some shooting goodness

Yeah, all doom and gloom make for a boring day! So, I present you some shooting goodness.

First up, just playing around with the GSG-5. 6 shots in well under a second.

Next, I bring you an eviel (in my best Obi-wan voice) AR-15. Bill Drill - 5 rounds on target at about 10 yards. Again, in under a second.

And, for those of you curious abuot just what an Open gun is, and what's the deal with the comp and all that other stuff, I present you my new Open blaster. Note the lack of any muzzle flip...

For compare and contrast, here's JR's SV Limited gun. JR's got a good grip on the pistol but there's still a bit of muzzle flip, especially compared to the Open blaster.

There, I feel better already. How 'bout you?
